WANNEROO cruised to victory in a T20 cricket clash against Willetton at home on Sunday but the Roos will need to turn up the heat with the ball this weekend if they are to fight back in the WA Premier Cricket two-day clash with Scarborough.
In the T20 game on Sunday, the Roos claimed Willetton’s first eight wickets for a paltry 47 runs, with Jack Cattrall (4-21) and Matthew Spoors (3-13) running rampant.
The tail provided some fight with the bat, but it was too little too late, as Willetton finished with 9-83.
Wanneroo started the run chase nervously, losing 3-17, before Spoors (42no) and Jacob Johnston (29no) stepped in to help the Roos to victory.
A day earlier, in the two-day clash with Scarborough, Wanneroo found the going tough against the might of Perth Scorchers paceman Andrew Tye.
Tye claimed four of the first five wickets to leave the Roos precariously placed at 5-77.
Things quickly went from bad to worse when Christian Smith and Kyle Millar followed in quick succession, but a 79-rearguard from Jack Cattrall (41) and John Walter (41) helped the Roos to 171, a target they could at least attempt to defend.
Scarborough will resume at 1-78 when the game continues this Saturday at Kingsway.
